(3 years later, still using my expensive sheets :p)
One thing I gonna missed dearly would be the spectacular sunsets which can be viewed from my living hall. Sometimes orangy and sometimes pinkish. It is just so beautiful. In some part of the world, you'll need to pay for such view, I was told.
And all theuncountable number of parties we used to have... christmas parties, trial birthday parties and no reason parties. Those days, we find every excuse to celebrate. If I remembered correctly, we once had a party at a friend's house on ghost festival, and another time, it was the demised of our dear Agong or something... unbelievable, but true. Don't get us wrong. We are not celebrating the sad event, but, the holiday granted. :p
(first Christmas party in Court 9, altogether 15 of us I think)
(I am not sure what is this. Christmas or trial party for Sidney's birthday..hmm...)
(Christmas with my ex-classmates)
Come every Christmas, I never failed to put up my little Christmas tree with twinkling lights and Christmas socks on the wall. Come every Chinese New Year, the red decorations will be up instead eventhough I don't spend them here.
This is my favourite wall decorated with memorable photos. When I was young, my grandparents never allow us to nail the walls to hang stuff. The rationale was that it will spoil the wall. I can never make any sense out of it. If I were to live there, why would I worry whether the wall will be spoilt or not as long as the beautiful things that I am gonna hang will enriched my life. Right?? So, you can imagine the pleasure I have when I got my own place & hammering all the nails into MY own wall and putting up all the beautiful frames. So shiok!
(my favourite wall with all my memories. I must stressed here that I sewed that red curtain)
Another funny scene would be where the two little rascals would rush to the door, wagging their tails, waiting eagerly for Harrison to appear at the end of the corridor when they heard his car entering the guardhouse.
I also love how on a gloomy rainy day, I would light up all the candles and have its shadows dancing on the wall at the same time, have an aromatic burner burning away at a corner filling the room with relaxing scent of lavender while sitting curled up on my cozy couch with a good book and a cup of hot tea with soothing music in the background....ahhh......
(My favourite time, tea time. I sewed the placemat)
Over the years, my apartment has transformed from a very bare apartment to a very cozy snug. My cocoon, my personal space, a place I feel safe. I've spent 7 christmases & chinese new year there. From cupboard full of boozes to cupboard full of vitamins & kitchen appliances. It shows how much I've grown with this apartment of mine. I am surely gonna miss my cocoon...
(Decided to change the wall colour to suit my new couch. Cozy cozy.. my cocoon.)
